Sacrificial support / ripping strips that stay put
« on: January 04, 2018, 06:38 PM »

I previously posted a video of a hole system jig I had CNC’d for me to put hole systems in tables. Here is a video of using the jig to make sacrificial mdf strips for ripping with a track saw, etc..  They have bench pegs in them, so they won’t move around when loading/unloading the table with sheeting.

I like what you have done here.  [big grin]  And, I can see other uses for those pegged strips. For instance, two set (90 deg to each other) along two adjacent edges of the table could be useful in establishing a square for assembly. Also, useful as a base for a fence system -- pegged to the table below, a fence would be better able to withstand heavier material bumped up against it without going out of position. And, I'm sure there will be other uses too. Nice work!

Looks like your rabbit joint is a hare off! ;)

Hi. Nice video!

I am using the same on my portable work bench (also FOG inspired..).
I use them as sacrificial cutting strips. Works out quite well. I made mine from old bed-frame parts I had laying around...

Nice video.

I personally would add another two holes in each of them, so they could be easily stacked into eachother (keeping the pegs from sticking out) should I don't need them at the moment.
